Obama Says Transgender Students Are Vulnerable And Must Be Protected
Transgender and LGBT students are vulnerable to potential bullying and it is society’s responsibility to protect them, President Obama said in an interview with BuzzFeed News Monday.
“We’re talking about kids,” the president said from the Roosevelt Room in the White House. “Anybody who has been in school, in high school, who has been a parent should realize that kids who are sometimes in the minority, kids who have a different sexual orientation or are transgender are subject to a lot of bullying, potentially. They’re vulnerable.”
